  • Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Gets $2 million guaranteed
    By RotoWire Staff

    Blount's one-year contract with the Lions includes $2 million guaranteed and another $2.5 million available in incentives, per Ben Volin of The Boston Globe. Blount actually settled for a much smaller contract last offseason on the heels of an 18-touchdown 2016 campaign, signing with the Eagles for $1.25 million. He only scored three times in the regular season for Philadelphia, but his average of 4.4 yards on 173 carries at least proved that his previous success wasn't solely a product of the surrounding talent in New England. The 31-year-old then capped off his season by hitting pay dirt in each of Philadelphia's three playoff games, highlighted by a 14-90-1 rushing line against his former team in the Super Bowl. Blount will get most of the short-yardage/goal-line work in Detroit, with a good chance to also lead the way on early downs between the 20s. Theo Riddick is locked in as the pass-catching back, while Ameer Abdullah's unimpressive track record through three seasons largely accounts for the incentive to sign Blount. It remains to be seen if this will be an all-out committee, or if Abdullah and Tion Green will be squeezed out of the rotation. More backfield help may also be coming in the draft.

  • Lions' LeGarrette Blount: Heads to Detroit
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Lions signed Blount to a one-year contract Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Blount is coming off a respectable season with the Eagles in which he totaled 766 rushing yards (4.4 average) and two touchdowns, although Jay Ajayi saw a heavier workload down the stretch in the regular season. Theo Riddick should remain the Lions' go-to option for passing downs, but Blount is now the likely candidate to see early down and goal-line work with Ameer Abdullah on the heels of a rough season (552 rushing yards, 3.3 per carry). Detroit could still add another back in the draft next month.

  • Blount rushed 14 times for 90 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 41-33 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. Blount broke off several productive runs throughout the course of the contest, but none bigger than his 21-yard scoring scamper in the second quarter that gave the Eagles a 15-3 lead at the time. The veteran had played a minimal role in Philadelphia's first two postseason wins, gaining a modest 40 yards combined in victories of the Falcons and Vikings. However, as he did Sunday, he'd scored once in each of those contests, and the rushing yardage he mustered against the Patriots served as a game-high total. Having played in 2017 on a one-year, $1.25 million dollar deal, Blount is slated to be an unrestricted free agent at the start of the league year. Despite his strong finish, it's conceivable that the Eagles could opt to move forward with a stable of younger backs that includes mid-season acquisition Jay Ajayi and impressive rookie Corey Clement.

  • Blount rushed six times for 21 yards and a touchdown but wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 38-7 NFC championship win over Minnesota. Blount contributed little outside of an 11-yard rushing touchdown that gave his team a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter. While Jay Ajayi is certainly the favorite to lead Philadelphia in carries during the Super Bowl after getting 18 rushing attempts in this one, Blount's two-game touchdown streak suggests he has a decent chance of finding paydirt against his former team.

  • Blount carried nine times for 37 yards and caught his only additional target for 11 yards during Sunday's 6-0 loss to the Cowboys. With Jay Ajayi sidelined, Blount led the team in rushing and received his largest allotment of carries since Week 12. He averaged a respectable 4.1 yards per carry, but he didn't have much opportunity to thrive in what was a miserable offensive display from both sides. It is a positive sign that Blount stepped up his performance in the season finale, but the team's decision to rest Ajayi likely offers a glimpse into how they view the usage of the two backs with a home divisional round game coming up in two weeks.
